A bacon-y twist to the classic paleo pancake recipe. For a non-paleo treat, throw in a handful of chocolate chips or cacao nibs. Top with agave nectar for extra sweetness.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels and pour bacon drippings into a glass bowl. Crumble bacon.

  • Beat eggs and banana in a bowl with an electric mixer until foamy and smooth. Beat 1 1/2 tablespoons bacon drippings, crumbled bacon pieces, and vanilla extract into egg mixture. Whisk coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into egg mixture until batter is just combined. Let batter rest for 2 minutes.

  • Heat a griddle over medium-high heat and lightly grease with bacon drippings. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

good pancakes i typically just do boxed gluten free pancakes but i decided to step outside the box and try something different. i cooked these on low to keep them from burning the first one i cooked on medium-high and it turned black. thats the only change i made and the rest were pretty good.

Instead of using a banana I used organic unsweetened applesauce and added some cinnamon. Instead of adding bacon bits to mix we ate the bacon on the side but I cooked the pancakes in the bacon grease. Both my 12 year old and 22 year old LOVED them! I also just put all ingredients in a bowl and mixed with a wisk to keep it slightly lumpy which is what makes pancakes fluffy. I made the pancakes pretty thick and next time I will make them thinner to get more even cooking (I'm still just learning to cook with coconut flour.) I will definitely be making these again!

I found this recipe to have a rather "flat" flavor even with the bacon. It is important that they be cooked on low heat so they don't burn. Read More
